Project Description: NGO LA SOLIDARITE Orphanage Garden. The President ASSOGBA Benoit has taken charge of 50 orphaned children, from the KATAGON area. We are presently planning the construction of an orphanage. In an attempt to help improve the children’s diet and to help lower costs for the NGO, we have begun to prepare a piece of land for a children’s garden. This project was initiated by myself and the president of my NGO. Both the president and myself have already provided the wood for the fencing with our own money but to be able to complete the project we will need additional funding. The president and I have been working together with the children on preparations. Once tools are received, this project will be able to continue for years to come.
